Boyfriends Closet Blogger
Local blogger Chantal Bethune (of Boyfriends Closet) braved the cold prairie wind to show her holiday style. We love her passion for shopping local, and her ability to transform a simple white t-shirt into a glamourous holiday look! Most of what Chantal is wearing is also available on Farminista, our online store.
Here’s a peek at her latest post…
Tonic is a Saskatoon staple. It is one of the city’s original fashion driven boutiques and now has two locations: one in the heart of downtown and another just off Broadway. Both shops offer tons of fun clothes, accessories and home-ware perfect for the prairie girl. I wanted to put together more unconventional Holiday party outfits (sans sequins and red body-con dresses) and offer something a little more laid back and fun–it is a party after all. The minute I walked into Tonic I noticed this simple leather wrap skirt that I knew I had to incorporate into the outfit. The shape of the skirt is eye catching and easily worn as a day time look with flats, a button-up and chunky knit sweater. Fur and leather are a given and how could I resist including this leopard jacket. Also, it will probably be -40°C on the night of the party so one needs keep wrapped and warm. Since this outfit is loud enough on it’s own I kept it simple with the accessories; how could a girl deny a clutch completely made of flowers? I thought it added the perfect finishing touch to this outfit. On my feet, are one of my favorite pairs of shoes from Swank Shoe Lounge;they standout but are still refined and extremely flattering on the foot. You can never go wrong wearing white and black to a party.
At Tonic we are always looking for new, unique brands. That is why we fell in love with Goldie, the London based designer that uses amazing, luxurious fabrics to create inspiring collections! We always put the Goldie London collection up on Farminista (our online store) for our out of town customers, but we have to warn you they sell out fast in our Boutiques!
Wow! We are so thrilled to be voted the best shopping for women in Saskatoon! (Dressy and Trendy!) in Planet S. It really means a lot to us and we will continue to go out of our way to bring you new designers and amazing deals as well as the best shopping experience ever!
